Procrastination is a wonderful thing

I was going to do my taxes tonight, because the last receipts came in today's mail.

And then, I looked at my shit-magnet of a desk, and realized that much work had to be done in order to be ready for tomorrow's visit from the cleaners.

So, somehow, in my wisdom, I pulled out every pattern I've ever printed or photocopied (legally!) and am now matching finished projects to ball bands, and separating things into several piles:

  • Completed
  • Queued (must make!)
  • Favourited (very appealing)
  • Instructional
  • I must have been drunk
I am hole-punching all this stuff, and putting it in a binder (yay me for not ever throwing out school supplies. I've got enough binders and subject dividers to last me a lifetime).

The bonus is there's now enough room on the magazine shelf for, you know, actual magazines.

And now Scout is washing his bum while he's sitting on the pile. Nice.

I have a binder like that, but I went and got me a big package of page protectors. Now when I print out a pattern, I just slip it into the sleeve. If it's only two pages long, it's also possible to display both pages by inserting them back-to-back. When I do a project, I slip the ball labels from the yarn into the sleeve with the pattern. Keeps everything tidy.
